AMSTERDAM — A man, 42, has admitted stabbing and killing a British man in Amsterdam on Friday, the police said. A second British man was seriously injured.
Police were able to identify the unnamed suspects from witness accounts and CCTV footage. "The man, who is known to us, will be questioned later regarding his role in this incident," a police spokesperson said.
The as yet unidentified Britons, probably supporters of the Middlesbrough Football Club, left a Warmoesstraat café around 3am on Friday and entered a side alley, the Oudezijdsarmsteeg, where they were offered drugs. Refusing the offer, heated words were exchanged and the dealer pulled a knife and attacked the pair.
The victims were taken to hospital, where one subsequently died. The attacker, wearing a light blue jacket, which according to the police would have been blood-stained, fled in the direction Oudezijds Voorburgwal and has not been seen since.
